The next time someone tells you mock drafts are pointless, point them to this nugget of information.
Like many NFL fans, the Ravens’ front office is perusing mock drafts in the days leading up the NFL draft. That’s how Baltimore knew to trade ahead of the Broncos and Texans to pick up Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown, according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated.
Obviously Ozzie Newsome and his Ravens aren’t reading just any mocks leading up to late April, but many legitimate writers have been tipped off by sources about which teams have shown interest in certain players. In this case, Baltimore had read from a clued-in writer that the Broncos and Texans wanted Brown.
The Ravens jumped from No. 62 overall to No. 56 to grab the former Wildcat. Houston and Denver held the next two picks in the second round.

The Super Bowl champions, Baltimore Ravens, waived running back Lonyae Miller. Miller was the backup to Ryan Mathews at Fresno State before entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent three years ago.
